Description: Microfilm of original archives of the Pueblo de San Jose de Guadalupe (1794-1850). The originals of these documents are held at History San Jose, with a few also at the San Jose Public Library. These comprise 6000+ letters and other assorted documents created by officials of the first pueblo founded in California (San Jose) and military presidios, as well as local missions. While there is significant overlap between the microfilm and originals at History San Jose (which are also being locally scanned), some of the documents exist only on microfilm.
Additional Description: The quality of the originals makes some of the digital files hard to decipher. The originals of these documents are held at History San Jose, with a few also at the San Jose Public Library.
